Steve Bannon – wielding a machete but not for long



Steve Bannon, the Breitbart voice of populist, nationalist and racist US, is waging war on the Republican Party. A strategist said “He’s funded by billionaires, he has a shallow, catchy message that appeals to marginally-educated fanatics, and his skill at asymmetric warfare seems formidable.”

It may be that he is channelling the tr Uranus square the USA Mercury opposition Pluto, running till spring 2018, which on past form has spewed up right-wing fanatics like McCarthy and caused deep unease about government. On that theory he may well implode, despite the fear he is creating at the moment. His Uranus is conjunct the USA Mercury and his North Node is conjunct the US Pluto – so he hooks into the uglier side of the country.

He does look upbeat this December/January 2018 with tr Uranus square his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint. But it’s all downhill thereafter with tr Pluto square his Mars/Neptune from February 2018 onwards till late 2019 which usually turns hopes into ashes; plus an enthusiasm and ambition-denting tr Neptune opposition his Sun/Jupiter midpoint from March onwards into early 2019. Thereafter it’s very mixed for him with wild over-confidence running into a brick wall as his Solar Arc Mars opposes his Jupiter and then Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct his Saturn. With similar in 2020 to 2023 as tr Pluto is in a gung ho opposition to his Jupiter/Pluto and then moves onto a catastrophic-disaster square to his Mars/Saturn. His past career is littered with failures and arguments and the leopard doesn’t change his spots.

He’s even falling out with his patron and financier Robert Mercer from late this November with tr Saturn square the composite Mercury, Sun, Mars and in 2018 the composite Venus and Uranus; plus a disappointing and suspicious tr Neptune opposition the composite Saturn. Ditto his relationship with Trump which is heading south from March next year with tr Neptune opposition the composite Sun Saturn.

  1. Thanks so much for this posting. A lot of your American readers are simply sick at heart with the cruelty and lunacy that’s been ascendent in our politics. Hope Dorothy is right.

  2. I bet that his relationships with Trump and Mercer will turn sour after the 2018 midterm elections.Bannon forcing out GOP incumbents for his far-right lunatic candidates will help elect Democrats.

    • It seems that it starts sooner, by February, when most candidates haven’t been even named. Something that’s worth considering is that during the campaign and early presidency Bannon was pushing forward the idea of withdrawing The US troops from Europe and Northeast Asia, because foreign policy, besides Middle East, didn’t seem to bother American public or him. Now, we’re in a completely different situation. It’s likely Americans will be reminded on how much they rely on the rest of the World, after all. Those “RINOs” Trump supporters love to bash tend to be the most skillful players in foreign policy. McCain, Corker and, interestingly though not surpricingly because of The Mission, several Mormon politicians understand that in order to get much The US has to give something back. I think there might be a sudden surge of Old School Republican Politicians due to things heating up globally.
